What else stands out among the other cards on the list?

Any Victor Wembanyama rookie card will be one to watch, as will rookie cards from any budding superstar like Tyrese Haliburton who is certainly coming into his own. In fact, it’s amazing that there only sprinkles of NBA legends like Michael Jordan, while players like Jaime Jaquez Jr., SGA, Chet Holmgren, and Anthony Edwards reach for the top of the list.

Also, there isn’t one Lebron James card to be found, and while Bronny has had up two different entries at any one time with his 2023 Topps Chrome McDonald’s All-American cards (#68 Action Shots and #20 Photoshoot, respectively), they aren’t anywhere to be found now that the college season has gotten under way and his name has faded from headlines.
